Lovely Weekend Gardening
Okay, I cannot tell a lie. These photos are from two weeks ago. Because that was the LAST TIME WE HAD ANY DECENT WEATHER FOR MORE THAN 30 MINUTES!!! I was lulled, I was fooled, I had hoped, I had PRAYED that Spring had actually arrived in Central Oregon.
I was wrong. As the last two weeks of thunder, lightning, hail, rain, freezing temperatures, frozen plants can attest to...
But I need a pick-me up here, on this cloudy, dreary morning. So I am posting these photos so I can pretend. For a bit at least.
We all got out in the backyard for several enjoyable hours. Ross dug, pulled, planted, hauled, built, raked, shoveled....yes, his usual can't-sit-still-mode..
I played with my flowers and herbs...even planted some...fantasized about what are yard could look like.....smiled at what it has finally become in 11 years...enjoyed the sunshine...
The nest helpers came out a bit late (but again, the weather has not been helpful). They looked lovely with the yarn, twine, wool, stringy bits hanging out. Hot Rod & Lil Mermaid spent quite a while figuring out where to hang them...
The chickens thoroughly enjoyed are weed pulling and got fat from so many worms...
The kids were joyful maniacs, covered in dirt, grass stains all over, enjoying the beautiful day...
(Yes, those are Hot Rod's toes. And yes, he likes to paint his toenails. Although Ross has limited his color choices.)
It was one of those days you really can't plan. It just happens. And afterward you think, why can't every weekend be like this?
Because the freaking weather won't cooperate! That's why!!
Wife to a VERY understanding man (even if he does roll his eyes and duck back into his garage way too much); mother to three maniacs,crafter, professional volunteer, crazed maniac in her own right...yep, that about covers it for now.
It's about crafts, family, gardening, life....really whatever the heck I want to talk about. I am wordy, messy, opinionated, disorganized, lacking in focus, manic, craft obsessed...and pretty much this all spills out on the pages of this blog. You've been warned!
